Now that Autumn has definitely arrived, it’s time to think about Halloween. With all the associated decorations, sweets and treats, and the costumes, Halloween can be the perfect time of year for a children’s party. Especially for school groups, children’s clubs, and nursery groups. But what should you consider when planning a Halloween party? Well, Mr Stix is an award winning children’s entertainer. Who provides laughter and fun to children’s parties and events across the North West. And this is his guide to planning a Halloween party.
Planning a Halloween party
For your Halloween party to be a success, you need to consider:
- the party food
- the costumes
- the decorations
The party food
A party isn’t a party without food. And for Halloween, you can consider a whole host of spooky snacks. The biggest element of this, if you are making your own food, is the food colouring. Turn your sandwiches green and your cakes orange and you’ll definitely be onto a winner.
If you want your guests to come in costume, you need to make sure they know in advance. Finding a costume at short notice can be a challenge for a lot of parents. So make sure they have plenty of time to prepare. You can also bring some cheap masks yourself, so that anyone without a costume can still be involved.
It wouldn’t be a Halloween party without the decorations. While you could buy a whole range of decorations, why not choose a theme first. From the inside of a witches hut, to a vampire lair, theming your decorations will make your event even more spooky.
Finally, you can’t forget about the entertainment. What will you do with the children once they have arrived, in costume? You could think about some Halloween party games like apple bopping, or you could host a disco. Alternatively, you could hire a children’s entertainer to really bring your evening to life.
